Family says Ric Flair’s surgery postponed, doctors ‘working to address complications’

Another report on what’s going on with Ric Flair’s recent hospitalization makes things sound a little less routine than the last word we had from the Nature Boy’s son-in-law Conrad Thompson, but still not as dire as the initial TMZ announcement.

Will Nunley of Atlanta’s Fox 5 has an update, sourced to the family:

Flair’s wife, Wendy Barlow, mentioned “ongoing health complications” in her statement last night. Whether the postponement is a sign of those complications worsening, or just being more difficult to get within acceptable parameters prior to surgery than doctors originally thought, isn’t clear. Either way, it’s good he’s in the hospital getting the care he needs.

We’ll keep you posted, and keep pulling for Naitch along with you.
